Home Security

What can you do to protect your property?

  • Have good working locks, preferably Deadbolt locks.
  • Good exterior lighting, illuminating all entrances.
  • Have a neighbor pick up your mail and newspapers when you're out of town.
  • Trim all bushes and hedges around your property so the Police can see it easily.
  • Participate in Operation I.D., mark your valuables.
  • Participate in your local Community Watch programs.

If you live in the City of Marion and would like your home checked by the Marion Police Department while you are out of town please call 828-652-3231.

  • Where you live; complete address and description of your home.
  • When you will be gone. The date and times of your departure and expected time of arrival back.
  • Emergency phone numbers, so that we can contact you if needed.
  • Let us know if any lights will be left on and if some else will be checking the property also: e.g. feeding animals, watering plants.
  • If you would like someone else notified for you in case of emergency, we'll need their name and number also.
